The singer said: "Excited to be breaking the New Year in with the Scots at Edinburgh's Hogmanay, what a sick event for a debut show."

Charlie Wood, director of Edinburgh's Hogmanay, said: "We're delighted to have one of the UK's most exciting new artists headlining Edinburgh's Hogmanay in our first year of producing the event.

"This has been Rag'n'Bone Man's year and so where better to end it than at the mother of all New Year celebrations in Edinburgh."

Edinburgh culture convener Donald Wilson said booking the award-winning act was a "great coup".

He said: "Edinburgh's Hogmanay is the place to be to send off the 70th anniversary of Edinburgh as the festival city and kick off 2018 with a stellar musical line-up.

"Rag'n'Bone Man is a great coup for our world-famous Concert in the Gardens.

"Get set to enjoy the best new year party in the UK, if not the world."
